According to the United States Constitution itself, the states have no right to touch the issue of gun ownership, let alone have the control over whether or not one can own a gun.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. - Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. - Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution
The right of the people of the United States of America, to keep and to bear Arms shall not be infringed, regardless of location, as all Americans have this right, such as they do with freedom of speech, religion, right to petition, etc. Also, the argument that Beck has used in regards to state rights, is incorrect. The tenth amendment itself, proclaims all powers not delegated to the United States (and the second amendment is delegated to the U.S. Constitution) is left to the states.
While we must fight anti-second amendment lawmakers and organizations on the left, we must educate those on the right that are blatantly incorrect and stand in the way of important legal decisions.
The right to bear arms is not something which the individual state has control over, it is a freedom guaranteed by the United States Constitution for all Americans, and to misquote the Constitution and oppose vital court action which would restore the rights of millions of Americans across the land, is near treason to the second amendment cause, especially when you are a supposed supporter of that cause.
